It's ovah!

People is reporting the news most of us suspected: the 10-year marriage of Jon and Kate Gosselin is officially kaput.

The mag reports the couple filed papers this afternoon at the Bucks County Courthouse in Pennsylvania. This is on the heels of a huge promotional campaign for their TLC show's so-called BIG ANNOUNCEMENT tonight.

Many have speculated that the couple have been living separate lives for a long time, especially after pictures surfaced in a magazine of Jon hanging out with young women at local bars.

There's no word yet on what type of custody arrangement the two will make for their eight kids.

Can someone explain why we are supposed to care about this “news”?

It’s hyper-attention like this that came between them…

These 2 are pathetic and selfish. I hope they use some of the earning for therapy for those kids that they’ve lied to about being a family and not getting divorced. That renewal of their vows was such a LIE!

how sad for all involved. no matter what you think about either of them, I don’t like to see this happen to anyone.

This just means Spin-Off shows… they are so attention/publicity hungry. Its so pathetic now. please….. just stop J&K, your 8 will love you for it

If he has eight kids, why is he looking at 1 bedroom apartments? Does he not plan on having them there? It seems like he is getting a pass for all of his behavior. She can do no right and he can do no wrong.

Reading, Pa isn’t in Bucks County.. it is in Berks County.

Why is there a vote on who is at fault? They are in a very sad situation.

Hope fame was all you two idiots thought it would be. Enjoy the train wreck lives you’ve doomed you kids to.

Ive only seen maybe 3 or 4 episodes of this show in its first season so I dont know but did they have any kind of marital counseling at all?? Isnt that the normal route, counseling before filing? what a shame and how will they manage custody? and why even LOOK at a one bedroom with the possibility of 8 kids visiting.. hmmm

I don’t know who’s to blame and frankly in the end it doesn’t matter. I feel for them because as someone going through divorce right now (not of my choice at all) I can’t imagine having this happen with the media up in the middle of it.

My thinking is Jon is doing what my husband is doing, allowing the kids to remain in their home and to some that might look like he’s getting a free ride but that’s the least he can do. Having the children go between two homes will be more damaging. And remember he doesn’t work so he may not be able to afford more than a 1 bedroom in general.

One-bedroom apartment or not, the kids are staying at the new, huge house. Jon and Kate are scheduling time where one or the other is there. That’s why he may need a one-bedroom - kids aren’t travelling back and forth between different places.

Where is the button that says they are both to blame?

Lyn June 22, 2009, 10:55 PM

Jon is a loser, that’s all I have to say.

gale osborn June 22, 2009, 10:56 PM

Please, I’m so sick of hearing how Kate drove him away! He doesn’t want all that responsibility. Well, tuff, get over yourself. He talks about how important the kids are , doesn’t he think the kids need a father and a mother. If your not being treated right make some changes within the relationship. I feel he’s being coached.
Everyone please leave Kate alone, she’s had all she can take. She admits she’s not perfect. Give her a break!!!!!!!!

Deanne June 22, 2009, 11:04 PM

Those of you who are “Jon-downers” need to chill out. Seriously. Oh, and DO NOT call him a loser. How dare you! None of us know these people personally. It takes two to make a marriage work. When one partner does not hold up his or her end of the bargain, EVERYONE loses, the kids most of all. I pray that they seek out marital counseling and that BOTH are open to making all attempts to patch things up on some level. If they don’t, that says a lot of their personal values.

Deanne June 22, 2009, 11:13 PM

To Gale Osborn; Absolutely no offense, but seriously, please, PLEASE do not do the boo-hoos for Kate. Please! It is insulting to slam Jon. As far as being treated right, are you watching the same show??? Jon is the one being constantly abused by Kate. Oh and she can handle all the stuff coming her way.When you live in the limelight, you have to deal with what comes with it. No one is perfect…not Kate, not Jon, not me, not you…no one. Kate does NOT deserve a bone or a break. If she is so tough, time to prove it. She has put out to the universe what she wants and is getting it…sorry, but I cannot find a shred of pity for Kate.

Kate is a self righteous martyr! Tonight she could even stop herself from blaming Jon for the demise of their marriage.It takes 2! Kate’s tears were not for her children or Jon, they were solely for herself.She now has to be 100% there for her children on Jon’s weeks off from being with the kids in their shared custody. No longer able to control and dominate Jon’s life as the “stay at home” Dad position that Kate delegated to him, as she toured the country on book tours and getaways.Jon is now reclaiming his dignity, self respect and manhood. Good for Jon, he will continue to be his kids favorite.The show has falsely inflated Kate’s ego and false pride to a dillusional high. Kate lacks humility and compassion.Her greatest desire is to “control” everyone and everything around her.Kate is so guarded and rehearsed. I could barely watch the whole show tonight because Kate is so theatrical, tears and all. Broadway is waiting for her! I am done watching this soap opera couple. The kids are so fortunate that they will always have each other for comfort and relief.

These poor children. They have such selfish parents. And now they are going to have to live with the fact that they were exploited “for their own good” because it helped pay the bills. Phlease…a family that is focused on true values can get through anything. Yes, it wouldn’t be easy, but the reward would be amazing. Instead, these children fall victim to their parents’ egos.

Dels June 23, 2009, 12:46 AM

now after seeing tonights episode I am convinced this couple wouldnt stand much of a chance even without the added strain of this show!
